This project investigates light and how light can affect an experience in an urban space. This paper is based on the experience of waiting at Valby Station (Toftegårds Allé). Throughout three iterations this paper examines how a positive experience of waiting for the bus can be altered by a lighting design.
The foundation of the analysis and discussion is based on theories, which create a concep- tual framework for our assignment. The theories used in the assignment are from Casper Ebbensgaard, Mikkel Bille and Ole B. Jensen in cooperation with Ditte Bendix Lanng. An- thropologist Mikkel Bille and Casper Ebbensgaard study phenomenological phenomenons as light and atmosphere. Ole B. Jensen researches staging mobilities and together with Ditte Bendix Lanng they research theories of designing mobilities. Additionally, using differ- ent qualitative and quantitative methods, this project investigates how the present and sub- sequent implemented lighting design influences human behaviour. Through use of these methods we achieve a comprehensive view on the user’s opinion of their experience of waiting. Through quantitative observation forms we achieve an insight in the changing be- havior of the users. In light of the three-cycled model from Alan Hevner the model creates the base of our design process. The design is evaluated by the model of FEDS.
This paper examines the possibility of changing the experience of waiting, only by using light as a phenomenon? This paper concludes that it is possible to change an experience of an urban space only by using light. The bus stop as a mobility design has many possible op- portunities to create a sensorial and different experience.
